Alaska Lodge Amenities & Activities

Treehouse at Mt. Mckinley Princess Wilderness Lodge


High above the trees surrounding your Alaska lodge you’ll find the treehouse, donning unobstructed views of Denali and the Alaska Range. After sharing the construction and design on a recent season of Animal Planet’s Treehouse Masters, we are excited to invite guests to delight in the surroundings from the deck, admire the rustic interior and partake in expert-crafted activities.


Explore what Alaska has to offer while reveling in the comforts of home with our unique Alaska wilderness lodge amenities. Grab a coffee from the espresso bar, then relax fireside in the main lodge. Head outside and roast marshmallows. Be sure to visit former bush pilot Cliff Hudson’s restored plane on site and hear stories of the climbers he used to fly directly to Denali.

Our lodges in Alaska bring the history and culture of the Great Land directly to you. Attend a photosymphony show of the Aurora Borealis set to classical music, or spend the afternoon learning about the park from Denali State Park naturalists.


Travel through the wilderness with our one-of-a-kind Alaska lodge excursions. Take a seaplane through the Great Gorge, and venture into the remote backcountry for the ultimate Denali hike. Horseback ride through trails with a knowledgeable guide, and pan for gold during a narrated tour of a historical mining area. Or land on a glacier by plane, for a hike that only those lucky enough get to experience.
